Frictional Realities is a mixed-reality performance where two participants at a time will be guided alone but together, to explore an asymmetrical virtual-physical environment.
The project explores the concept of frictions in immersive environments, and its uses as part of an embodied mixed-reality performances. Frictions can be seen as sensorial, temporal gaps that creates a mental dissonance in your subjective reality and identity. A feeling of falling out of your immersion of the “real” reality to fall into the experience of your own body.
The original concept of ”frictions” was developed by Human-Computer Interaction researcher, Asreen Rostami, whose work has been a part of the project’s development.
